I suspect you have a defective battery (standard installed on the laptop) on my new Satellite Pro U300 - 11 k and I wonder if someone had a similar problem.
When the power drops to 10%, my laptop occasionally loses power. In the range of less than 7% capacity always loses power, i.e. either fails to start the hibernation, or is unable to complete the process (I can always tell if power was lost during hibernation because of the characteristic of the system of protection HD sound). I did several tests, especially in the power saving mode. "High performance" mode power seems to be a little more reliable, but still fails to shut down less than 5% of the capacity. The level of Hibernate by default on the Toshiba Windows Vista pack is as low as 2%, so I can wait until it is able to work at this level.
Overall the battery capacity is about 1 h (Media Player, fashion high performance, maximum intensity) at all about 2 to 2.5 hours (slowed or text editor, mode, brightness low power saving). Charging time is about 1 hour (seems too short). They are difficult to objectively assess that Toshiba avoids quoting the specifications of the battery, but I consider the question of the reliability of the above as being a serious (do not want to take the risk of damaging the HD). I am considering visiting the service center, but leaving both the computer and the battery with them would be a nuisance for me and I would rather avoid it if I can. I wonder if I can claim the warranty on the battery alone?
Any suggestions would be welcome.
-The U300 is a few weeks old.
-The battery has been fully charged and discharged (approximately 15 times since purchase).
-Cooldown takes 1 h - 1.5hrs
-J' using Vista Business
-J' went through the power settings to make sure they are ok and to change threshold levels
-I am an experienced business user, I use a laptop computer at work which stops always perfectly to the power level of 3%
Thanks for help

Reading your post, I do see no battery issues! Everything you say is right and not a malfunction.
Please note that the Vista operating system needs much more computing resources and the battery is much more emphasized running Vista!
Please also note that the level and time to discharge the battery can be different! Everything depands of the use of the laptop!
All the portable devices and parts waste the power of the battery at the same time and that's why there are differences in the discharge procedure.
Don t be afraid and take advantage of your laptop but if you think you will need to contact the ASP in order to clarify this issue, then feel free to contact service technician.
They should be able to help you.
Have ordered a Seagate Momentus 7200.02 200 GB SATA-300 7200 RPM 16 MB 2.5 "for my Satellite Pro A200GE - 26. Toshiba slow disk with this laptop ships is simply not fast enough so it is replaced.
My question is this: can I use the recovery disc of the DVD came with my laptop to reinstall Vista and all the Toshiba drivers on this new album?
If this is not the case-how can I do?
If I can do it - could you give me a checklist of things to do?
Are several factors I need to get used to exist on the recovery disk?
I ask this because I know how to do this on a PC with the Original OS disc, but I was horrified when my laptop has been delivered and no original OS disk - I think it's very bad for any help would be accepted with gratitude.
Thank you in advance,
You should not worry about the whole procedure, just install the HARD drive, put the recovery CD in your CD/DVD drive, press F12 and start with your CD drive or just press 'C' (which automatically inserted CD, boots).
The recovery is not limited to a specific HARD disk, it automatically adjusts the size of the partition and install EVERTHING on your disk as a preinstalled OS shipped directly from the factory. Don t you need some additional drivers or software, the only thing you need to do is to copy your personal data on the system drive and customize your windows.
It is the intention of recovery media: put it in and it does everything by itself.
That's all. :)
See you soon
I received a Satellite Pro 4600, unfortunately this laptop has 2 and a half proceeding on this issue. The first is MS2000, then XP then an incomplete installation of XP. When I start the laptop, it asks which OS I want to use. I have a legal copy of XP that I bought and I want to reformat the computer laptop and put on a new install of XP, the problem is how to enter the BIOS to change the settings to boot to a CD?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
First of all you n t need to access the BIOS to boot from the CD.
You can simply press the F12 key immediately after the laptop has been powered.
It would show the available boot options.
Alternatively, you can press the C button that would automatically allow the CD/DVD drive as the boot source.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro A300 - 1 2, some how the BIOS got locked and a startup password has been enabled, I tried to get in the BIOS to disable the startup password but without any job.
What I need to send or take it back to Toshiba to take them off for me?
Thank you for your time.
If the BIOS password does not work for you, you need professional help. Contact the nearest Toshiba service and they can remove it for you.
I an A10 Pro of the Satellite with Win XP Pro installed and cannot access the power settings. When I go into the power settings in Windows, I get a msg telling me to use Toshiba Power Saver and Win power settings are grayed out.
I installed pwrsav-spa10-xp-60007-.zip which tells me that it is installing the Toshiba Power Saver, but always Win power settings are greyed out and I can't find no separate application "Toshiba Power Saver".
The BIOS shows ' version of BIOS ACPI = 1.30.
Can someone advice how to change the power settings please?
You have the "Toshiba common Modules" installed? They must first of all for many models of Toshiba, and power settings module is an add-on for that.
If you do not have the appropriate restoration or the utility CD handy, the drivers can be downloaded from the Web from Toshiba website.
I hope this helps, let us know how you go
Since my laptop for some reason stop (explained in my last post), I read messages from others who are similar to my problem and some of the responses that they was that they must clean the cooling with a vacuum (vacuum) module.
So I was wondering how to clean it and where is it? (I m not an expert on computers)
I am not owner of a Satellite Pro 6100 but I saw this laptop on several pictures and it seems that the fans are placed at the rear near the CC.
If you try to vacuum dust and debris from these grids of fans.
I found also found a very detailed instruction how to remove and open the Satellite Pro 6100. http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba6100/Toshiba_Satellite_Pro6100_dismantle_1.htm
BUT if you have no experience, you must do it yourself. The best way to ask someone who knows what to do!
Sorry for my English.
But I need help:

Perform a complete shutdown in Windows 8 - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2B03EY0002R01.htm
Restart your computer and try to use F2 or F12. If you use F12 there should be opportunity to enter the laptop configuration settings.
Please test and send feedback.

I just received my new laptop computer and cannot for the life of me find how to change the color settings in the monitor.
My old desk there was a button on the monitor.
In a first time laptop user im nuts will try to find how to change my monitor settings...
If anyone can help id be so grateful
Please don t mix the portable computers internal monitor with external PC monitor.
You won't find any control unit and on the external monitor that would help you to change the color.
I put t know what your laptop smart chart uses but my laptop supports Intel graphics card and pre-installed (in Control Panel) Intel Graphics Media Accelerator provides a few color correction settings.
The parameters are; color, gamma, brightness and contrast
Here, you can set values between 0 and 100

I have a problem with the volume control. When I adjust the volume using the button on the left side of the laptop, I can only choose 3 levels of "loudness":
No volume, very quiet volume and maximum volume (from rabies).
Is this normal, is not anyone have problems with this?
I hope that the problem is because of the digital volume adjustment screw. The adjuster does not record the exact position of the volume button. Every time when I get a phone call at work (I listen to internet radio), I turn off the radio by using the adjustment screw on the side of the laptop. When I end the phone call, I always need to open the laptop and the volume on the windows task bar, because when I use the device volume control on the left side of the laptop, it will just immediately at maximum volume.
It s very strange that your volume control contains only 3 levels of volume
I noticed that Toshiba has released a new driver (v. 220.127.116.1173) sound on the European driver page.
How about if the update driver sound?
Audio driver certainly controls the volume sound and in my opinion it s worth a try.
I have a SAT PRO A120, when I connect a microphone he pictures it upward, but there is no sound, how can I reactivate or activate it, iv looked in the windows and control his Toshiba volume controller, but not luck
Thank you very much
If you go to controlled Panel-> Audio devices there should be a setting and therefore the volume of the microphone, as well as opening the volume icon in the lower right hand tray and selecting advanced settings and clicking on the checkbox for microphone, so you can adjust the volume of entry etc. Let me know if it helps.
